“Brooks likens his game to Jayson Tatum or Luka Doncic”
Tatum was a consensus McDonald’s all american, the #3 player chosen in the nba draft, and is a fringe nba all-star candidate. Doncic was also the #3 player chosen in his draft and in only his second year he is actually vying for NBA MVP (as in, the best or most valuable basketball player on the planet)
Gotta love the confidence that Brooks is displaying, even though his self-defined comps are just a tad aspirational:)
Yeah, the comment came more in a “I model my game after these guys” type of way. Don’t think he’s under any illusions that he’s Jayson Tatum or Luka Doncic right now.
Tatum and Doncic’s playing styles are also drastically different, haha.
Haha yeah there’s that, too. I guess you could go with: rangy shot-creators with a diverse skillset if you want.
Not really sure I’d compare Pierre Brooks to either of them. Much more of a bully ball type of big wing, last time I saw him.
I’m also not sure I’ve ever heard a high school player compare themselves to someone who I thought was reasonable, FWIW.
